Muslim pirate teenager Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse was sentenced New York today to 34 years in federal prison for piracy on the high-seas. During his sentence he revealed how his Muslim leaders forced him into attacking America against his will:
I’m sorry very much for what happened to victims on ship. I am very sorry about what I caused,” he said. “I was recruited by people more powerful than me. I got my hands into something more powerful than me and I am sorry.
“I ask forgiveness for all the people I harmed and the U.S. government.”
Hollywood’s dramatization of pirates has often been listed as a motivator in kids turning to piracy. In the United States no one had been charged with piracy since 1885. Now that movies like“ Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” and its straight to video sequel “ Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge” piracy is rampant worldwide.
